I've been a DiyDrones member for a while now and have finally decided
to give it a go; I also have the forethought to ask a few, more
experienced people, what they think.
With that in mind -
What program would you recommend to design the GCS in? Running windows, I need to be
able to embed and control a Google Earth/Maps window. I also need to be
able to take input from USB devices; mainly a joystick, throttle, and
pedals. I downloaded both; Labview and Visual Studio, trial edditions,
and have messed around with both for a while now. Which one should I
choose? Or, feel free to suggest another program, or even a linux based one, as I am very flexible at this point.
All input appreciated!
